SPIKE LEE THROWS JACKSON BIRTHDAY CELIBRATION IN BROOKLYN
Today is Michael Jackson's 51th birthday. Thousands of Michael Jackson fans are dancing the rain away in a Brooklyn park at a celebration hosted by filmmaker Spike Lee.
The party marks what would have been the 51st birthday of the late pop star.
After a slow start amid heavy rain, a sizable crowd turned out at Brooklyn's Prospect Park to listen to a DJ spin Jackson's hits.
Many showed up wearing fedoras and T-shirts with Jackson's image. A few wore white gloves.
Lee directed two music videos for Jackson in 1996.
He told reporters, "I was just like everyone else. I loved his talent."
